NC&StL Restoration Update: “No. 576 Boiler Report Now Available”

NASHVILLE – During the first few months of 2020, experts in steam mechanics and Nashville Steam volunteers inspected the current condition of No. 576’s boiler. Because of this cooperative effort, we have successfully identified all trouble areas of the boiler and have developed the scope of work for the boiler repairs. These efforts are already underway with volunteers logging, measuring, and removing nearly 70% of those “trouble” areas for repair and replacement prior to the temporary suspension of our mechanical work sessions.

All proceeds from the sale of this song will benefit the restoration efforts of Nashville Steam.”
